Mary Budden Estate - Binsar/ Uttaranchal
Budden Estate is named in memory of its last known inhabitant in the 19th century, Ms. Mary Budden. In 1990 Ashwani and Serena Chopra bought the estate and with it they inherited an enamel jug, some of Mary Budden's books, an old armchair and the ruins of a girls hostel that held on to the memories of her life in Binsar.
Almora (close to Binsar) served as an administrative centre under the British. Almora's bracing climate and green forests attracted many colonial officers to establish retreats in the adjacent hills.
